ask Pope Francis
Dear Pope Francis: I hear you'll be spending the 4th of July in Bandon. Is that really true?

Pope Francis: Yes. I'm looking forward to walking Denny Dyke's labyrinth, watching the parade, shopping at the Old Town Marketplace, participating in the Alive After Five Wine Walk, and watching the fireworks. I'm also running low on Misty Meadows Wild Huckleberry Jam.
